stenciled IndianaNew York 1971 (on the reverse)

oil on canvas

48 by 48 in.

121.9 by 121.9 cm.

Executed in 1971.

This work is in good condition overall. There is evidence of light wear and handling visible along the edges and corners, with associated faint hairline cracking along the pull margins. There is evidence of radial hairline craquelure scattered throughout, most noticeable surrounding the “I”. Under Ultraviolet light inspection, the aforementioned area fluoresces slightly darkly and appears to have benefited from consolidation, and there is a ½ inch spot in the same area in the yellow paint that fluoresces darkly and appears to have benefited from retouching. Framed. 


Framed dimensions: 51 ¾ by 51 ¾ in. (131.4 by 131.4 cm.)
